FIFA NATIONS LEAGUE


A two event tournament, the first being the qualifiers which runs in the even years i.e. 2012 and the second the main tournament which runs in the odd years i.e. 2013. These competitions are additional and do no replace any other international competition, the dates of the FIFA Nations have been configured so they don't conflict with the World Cup Qualifiers and European Cup Qualifiers.


Below there are two links, each link has the same set-up for the main tournament but has different qualifying systems. You will only need to load the file whose qualifying system appeals to you more.

Additional Notes


As mentioned above the dates for the qualifiers and main event have been configured to avoid clashing with World Cup qualifying games and the European Qualifying games, as for other competitions that fall within August and May i.e. African Cup of Nations the game reconfigures the dates of the FIFA Nations games in a way that no congestion occurs.


Awards - Monthly and yearly awards have been added to both the Qualifying and main event.


Club and country games, while its possible to manage both to avoid frustration at having players missing for club games I would recommend only using this as a International save game or a Lower league and International save game.


As only the international rules and awards were added any transfer update database should work alongside this without complication.



Place file in editor data file
Start new game
Tick box in database pop up box
click clear in database file screen and then select FIFA Nations and any transfer date database you may want added


Proceed


If you have any problems and have loaded a transfer update file start over and remove the the transfer file.

ENJOY

Having a slight problem uploading to mediafire at the moment, managed to upload a zipped file for the continent qualifying version but for the single qualifying see the attachment at the bottom of the OP.
